Long shot, double check the language selected (the field second from  
left, bottom of TM window). The picture shows 'and', 'do' and 'my'  
highlighted which looks like syntax highlighting for Perl (and  
probably others) - though, of course, if those are keywords in JS too  
then the html bundle probably knows that syntax too... I did say it  
was a long shot.
